A mile & 3/4 recap: questions from the past year & change…

Every time I hit the quarter mark, I try to compile the lists in case you’re wondering (like I often do) the weird places my noggin likes to take me. Also, considering how the past year and change have gone (and the crazy times before... and more to come), maybe this’ll be a silly little … Continue reading A mile & 3/4 recap: questions from the past year & change…

If “fast food withdrawal” is real, I’m sure I’ve been going through it this past week…

Before work this past Saturday, I sat down to what I decided was gonna be my last incredibly unhealthy meal out: eggs, hash browns, sausage and bacon, yummy pancakes (I REALLY wanted pancakes all last week, dunno why), OJ and weak-ass coffee that needed a bunch of sugar to make it palatable. This was the … Continue reading If “fast food withdrawal” is real, I’m sure I’ve been going through it this past week…

Building “failure days” into my schedule… or trying to.

Granted, that's probably NOT the best way to phrase that, but I haven't been able to think of a better one the past few days. Brain fog is not terribly fun when you have a ton of stuff to do, but dizzy spells have been knocking you for a loop for a week. (le sigh) … Continue reading Building “failure days” into my schedule… or trying to.

Q#175: What makes cabbage weep & how can you stop it from happening?

This is something that's been bugging me for a while, and especially when I started getting those bagged salads again (ate my 2nd one this week so far and I'm jotting down ingredients to chop up so I can save on crap plastic and packaging in the future). I've learned that I really have to … Continue reading Q#175: What makes cabbage weep & how can you stop it from happening?

Attempting to (re)introduce fish into my diet and my home… & it’s gonna be tough

My numbers suck. That's what it comes down to. I've spent a while working on my iron deficiency (ebbing and flowing, namely because my diet over the past year has been awful and I've relapsed in regards to my ED a few times), and now I'm more concerned about my cholesterol A1C and my 10+ … Continue reading Attempting to (re)introduce fish into my diet and my home… & it’s gonna be tough

The 5 Love Languages: The secret to love that lasts, by Gary Chapman

My Copy: 9780802412706 (image from 5lovelanguages.com) I'd heard a little about this book in the past, and I can't remember what finally made me select it and buy it for myself. Haven't been in a relationship in ages and with my odd family situation... well, maybe that was part of the incentive to do so. … Continue reading The 5 Love Languages: The secret to love that lasts, by Gary Chapman

I think I just found the most inventive, hilarious and somewhat creepiest thing I’ve ever seen on YouTube: Cardboardia

As a ship nerd, I'm all about documentaries and ship stories... and have been since I was a little early elementary aged turd and learned about the Titanic (ze gateway drug to learning about statistics and disaster stories, it seems). Wanna go to the library? Hells yeah. Who's gonna be coming out with a bunch … Continue reading I think I just found the most inventive, hilarious and somewhat creepiest thing I’ve ever seen on YouTube: Cardboardia
